was the fact he was able to get the all-powerful rupert murdoch media machine behind him in the late '90s. rupert murdoch was just as right wing then as he is now. but his right-wing tabloid "the sun," which is as dominant in british tabloid media as fox news is anywhere cable news, tony blair convinced the conservative rupert murdoch to have the conservative "sun" tabloid get behind the blair candidacy. this right-wing paper, "the sun," endorsed the labour party and tony blair. so after nearly two decades of the labour party in exile, tony blair got rupert murdoch's backing. that helped him get elected prime minister. labour got to be in charge of britain for the next decade. george w. bush got a new poodle. and we all got the iraq war. whatever you think of what tony blair did with his time in power, his rise to power was skilled, very skilled. and that skill was manifest in part with his triumph in the murdoch primary. josh marshall at the website talking points memos has been writing about this. he wrote about it this past summer and again today. the idea of the murdoch primary everyb

to forget for rupert murdoch. we'll look back at the hacking scandal that stopped the presses at the news of the world forever but inspired lots of column inches elsewhere. >>> now, all the currencies that you see here have strengthened against the u.s. dollar this tuesday, if only slightly, in this rather light trading. the euro and pound are up by between a fifth and a quarter of 1% while the yen is up over .1%. the euro is comfortably above 1.30 having gone down obviously in recent sessions to comfortably below 1.30 against the u.s. dollar by half a cent below that. recovering a cent and some change from the low it touched in 2011. >>> speaking of 2011, looking back over the year, news corporation has arguably made as many headlines as it has written this year. that's hardly surprising when one of the company's most popular outlets, "the news of the world," a tabloid sunday newspaper here in britain, was shut down altogether. the phone hacking scandal that enveloped the murdoch empire cost dozens of people their job. for a time it looked as if it would cost news corp. a lot of money. h

a bit of it. >> okay. my last question is for you, mr. rupert murdoch. you said that your friend 52 years i think has stepped down and has resigned because he was in charge of the company at the time. in other words he said he was the captain of the ship and therefore he was lobbying. is it not the case that you for the captain of the ship, you are the chief executive officer of news corporation but you are in charge of it and you do not regard yourself as a hint of chief executive. this terrible thing happened on your watch. [inaudible] >> no. >> why not? >> because i feel that people i trusted him i'm not saying who, let me down and i think they behaved distastefully and be treated the company and me. i think that frankly prime the best person to clear this up. specs before mr. murdoch. i do very much appreciate your and encourage and having seen this through despite what just happened to you. thank you. >> thank you [inaudible] when you signed off on the payment, did you see or were you made aware of that transcript that he had? >> nope. i was not aware of that at the time. >> th

who knows how to use it, rupert murdoch. yes, i did start out in tabloid newspapers. they were the only people -- we all aspire to be murdoch papers. no voicemail, no cell phones. >> just pings, and woolie mammoths. >> quills, but that was a scandal -- that is a scandal, because it's still rolling, that takes in power, corruption at the highest level through law enforcement. the idea that anyone in the public eye is okay to spy on, whether the public eye is on a victim of murder or they're just famous, i think it was a moment when the otherwise, you know, quiet majority, the people who buy these things every day, and may find it voyeuristic and titillating, where they said, you know what? we actually have some values and standards, and it's about time it stopped. big scandal. >> michael? >> fast and furious for me was the scandal that i think will have some legs going into 2012, simply because it speaking to a couple things, one, what the government is willing to do without thinking, thinking it through. we see that on debt and deficit, but we also see the devastating impact it
